Subject: The Commercial
The sponsor is Kreisler watch bands.
The first commercial lists the lady's band as "only" $9.95 and in the second commercial the lady's band is advertised at "only" $4.95.
Accounting for inflation and cost of living the band that was only $4.95 in 1951 would be around $45.00 in 2013!!! The band that sold for $9.95 in 1951 would cost around $92.00 in 2013!!!
WOAH!!!!! The good old days weren't so good.

You have to laugh at the song about the watch as well... they sing to us that the Kreisler band "makes your watch look better than new!!!" I actuall thought they were singing "...makes your watch look better than YOU." Well,... it could happen!!!

The beginnings of several of these TALES OF TOMORROW episodes are chopped off because the episodes were ripped from 3 commercial DVD releases in which the opening titles contain a copyright notice.

Thanks so much for the first episode of this great show. ToT is now one of my firm favorites, and finding new episodes is always great. My only quibble with this episode, however, was the edited beginning, missing the opening credits and title card.

What a great way to start a show. This program is
based on Theodore Sturgeon's short story (the above title is the review). You can find the otr production Beyond Tomoorow in www.archives.org. Take
a listen. BTW best upload ever of ToT! Thanks.
